- ... Proteinaceous aspartic proteinase inhibitors are rare in nature and are described in only a few plant species. One of them corresponds to a family of cathepsin D inhibitors (CDIs) described in potato (Solanum tuberosum), involving up to 15 isoforms with a high sequence similarity. In this work, we describe a tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) wound-inducible protein called jasmonic-induced protein 21 ( ...

- ... 17β-Estradiol (E2) induces cathepsin D gene expression in MCF-7 human breast cancer cells and previous analyses of the proximal promoter region of this gene identified two functional enhancer sequences; namely an Sp1(N)₂₃ estrogen-responsive element (ERE) half-site (-199 to -165) and an imperfect palindromic ERE (-119 to -107). A third region of the cathepsin D gene promoter (CD/L, -145 to -119) w ...
